LA (BEVERLY): THE BEST NEW LA EYEWORKS SHADES
By Nora Zelevansky / July 13th, 2009
Not every trend should be adopted by every individual.
For instance, if I tuck a loose tank into a high-waisted skirt, I look like a torso-free Erkel wannabe. Or, to be more current and clear, I look like Jessica Simpson, when she tries to pull off the same thing. Big-chested girls with small torsos should NOT wear high-waisted or wide belted skirts.
So, anyway . . . the above LA Eyeworks "Director" sunglasses are, I admit, challenging. Not everyone will pull them off successfully, but they're still the coolest things around. In fact, my mother owns a similar pair that she bought (and has since kept wisely hidden away) circa 1985 and I sort of wish I could steal them from her. Honestly, I just love that I now have contact lenses and don't have to put three billion dollar prescriptions in every pair I wanna wear. The world is my oyster!
As for LA Eyeworks, which is a local staple, I've often found their stuff a bit eighties (maybe because I first visited as a kid in, well, the eighties), but now that's a good thing yet again.
Anyway, here I am above in another frame I really love with a similar silhouette, but a raised bridge. I THINK these are called "Minnow," but I'm not 100%. And I'm not sure they're right on me (especially in this pic), but they are definitely cute stuff.
Jessica and I sure have it rough. Sigh.
